They were all California models and had lived most of their life somewhere in the area.
OTOH, when we finally found our desired trailer, it was one from Ohio that spent most of its life in a dry climate area in Colorado. So far 1/2 of the frame is completely exposed, and I have done surgical inspections of most of the other key areas, and there is not a single place that will need welding of any kind. So with that being said, I am very impressed with the Airstream production quality for building me a trailer able to survive 52 years of outdoors camping without needing any structural repairs. (other than the floor replacement, which was showing delamination due to the PO, not AS.
Sounds like the old cliche for real estate applies to Airstream's: "location, location, location"
